We arrived at Tankat and asked a member of staff for a table for 2 and were told to wait which we did. 10 minutes later we asked another member of staff for a table and were again told to wait despite the restaurant being only about a third full. An Argentine couple then came in and took a table which no one challenged. A woman then came and led us to a table at the very back of the restaurant past empty tables to an area where no one was dining. At this point we decided to go elsewhere. There are far better restaurants in BA with helpful accommodating staff.

Staying in Lavelle, the restaurant offers better variety than the numerous local eateries around here and Florida.

Of course, i m not a local or expert in spanish food but the taste here is great for many of the dishes we ordered comprising calamari, shrimps and paella

yes, worth another visit and obviously the restaurant is full during lunchtime which is a benchmark for whether your food is good or bad or excellent. The 10% tip is charged to your bill and they accept US$

A very good place to have lunch, you need to take care if you want a table you need to book, anyway you can go to the bar, excelent plates and service with a good price / quality relation.

Good food, not great but reasonably priced. The place is small and narrow, however it does have a nice atmosphere.

Cozy and loaded with locals. Lots of choices on menu ( ask for an english menu if needed ). Plenty of wine selections too!
